AEW

Mike Tyson awarded Cody the AEW TNT championship at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view, and even scared off the legendary Jake “The Snake” Roberts in the process. Tyson wasn’t done with All Elite Wrestling, though, as he showed up in the AEW ring again on Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite … and he wasn’t the only champion in attendance.

Tyson appeared with former UFC light heavyweight champions Rashad Evans and Vitor Belfort as well as former two-division UFC champion and the recently-retired Henry Cejudo. The group interrupted the show’s closing segment, a “celebration” of The Inner Circle’s victory at the Double or Nothing Stadium Stampede match — a match they lost.

After The Inner Circle handed out gifts to each other, Jericho said what he most wants is Mike Tyson’s head on a platter. Tyson’s crew — which included Belfort, Cejudo and Evans — came to the ring where Jericho demanded an apology from Tyson for being knocked out by the boxing champ back in the WWE days.

Things broke down into a brawl between The Inner Circle and Tyson’s crew, which led to an emptying out of the locker room to pull the groups apart.

Cejudo has teased possible involvement with pro wrestling, suggesting WWE in the past. He was seen attending a Memorial Day party with AEW talent this past weekend, with Marko Stunt tweeting a picture with the former bantamweight and flyweight champion.

Belfort was seen ringside during the Double or Nothing pay-per-view with American Top Team’s Dan Lambert. Belfort and Cejudo have been training with Tyson during the former heavyweight boxing champion’s planned return to the ring for exhibition bouts. Belfort has gone as far as saying, “I think AEW should have Mike and myself do a tag team match against two of their champions. Tony [Khan], the owner of AEW is a good friend of mine. That for me is a great idea and I’m open to it,”
